* A
ll Volunteers are required to take Abuse Awareness Protocol Training each year. 
All Regular Season Managers and Coaches are required to complete Diamond Leader Training.

Volunteers will need to be certified once in Concussion Protocol and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Protocol. This requirement has not changed.

All training must be completed before any engagement with the players.  If you fall into one of these categories, you are required to produce the mandatory certificate showing that you have completed the required protocol. Managers/Coaches please save and carry each of the certification certificates in your team binder.  All volunteers should carry a hardcopy or an electronic copy with them to all game/practice sites.

Should you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. please contact us.

Concussion Protocol: (Required Once)

1. (a) California law requires that all volunteers, including managers/coaches, administrators and officials must complete an online concussion training at least once before supervising youth athletes; a certificate from a prior season is valid for this season. It takes only about 30 minutes to complete the training.

2. A concussion and head injury information sheet must be signed by both the athlete and a parent/guardian before the athlete initiates practice or competition. An existing form from the 2020 spring may be used if it’s available. The signed sheet must be carried with the player’s medical release and code of conduct form.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Protocol: (Required Once)

AB379 now requires the same protocols used for concussions in youth and high school sports to be used to help protect young athletes participating in school and community youth sports organizations from sudden cardiac arrest—the #1 killer of young athletes. Community youth sports organizations include an organization, business, nonprofit entity, or a local governmental agency that sponsors or conducts amateur sports competitions, training, camps, or clubs in which persons 17 years of age or younger participate.
